NAFTA Chapter 19 Panel Issues Ruling on Canada’s Challenge of US Final Dumping Determination on Canadian Softwood Lumber Products

On Thursday, October 5th, a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Chapter 19 panel issued a ruling on Canada’s challenge of the US Department of Commerce’s final dumping determination on Canadian softwood lumber products.

NAFTA Chapter 19 allows for the establishment of binational panels to review administrative decisions in anti-dumping and countervailing duty cases. The panels replace judicial reviews of agency determinations.

The panel, according to Canadian sources, “Directed the US Department of Commerce to review key aspects of its determination.”
